'I know I'll find him in October or November': The SINGLE woman who has planned and paid for her April wedding – but is yet to meet the groom
19:42 GMT, 6 August 2012
A single woman has planned and paid for her wedding in April – despite having no potential groom.
Anita Chakra Burtty, a 42-year-old astrologist from Sydney, Australia, believes that she will find her perfect match in October or November of this year.
She told A Current Affair that 'it's not going to be a huge issue' if she doesn't get married in April of next year, but she 'knows' that she will.

She added that she is '100per cent' convinced that she will meet a man and has even purchased her wedding dress, booked the florist and locked in a barbeque reception in the beach suburb of Coogee.
Ms Burtty, whose horoscope is unknown, is yet to respond to MailOnline's interview request.
The bubble brunette, who rather ironically worked as a risk manager for eight years, has also invited friends and family from England over to Australia to join her on her special day.
'Hopefully, once he meets me, he'll realise I'm very fun and very generous and I'm a very kind and loving person and he won't mind that I'm only a tiny bit insane,' she said with a laugh.

Ms Burtty is so convinced that she will find a groom that she even asked her best friend Jeremy to change his own wedding date in order to avoid a clash with hers.
Jeremy told the TV news program: 'We were just planning dates at the time so you know, I wouldn't be a good friend to Anita unless I believed in her and supported her'.
He acknowledged that his friend's behavior is rather unusual.
'Obviously, it's a bit out there but the world's a strange place and I've seen weirder things happen so I guess we'll find out in six to eight months,' he said.

Mr Burtty added that if she doesn't find Mr Right by the end of the year, the stars show that January is 'going to be another very active time in terms of astrology'.
'Obviously, it can happen at any point in time now and that's what I hope,' she said.
Ms Burtty now runs her own naturopathic business titled Anita Natural Lifestyle.
It specialises in 'women's health, pre-conception care, pregnancy, fertility and menopause' issues.
She also holds a Master of Science from Salford University in Manchester as well as a Bachelor of Naturopathy, Natural Sciences from the Nature Care College.
She told Sydney's Balmain Village Voice last year that flower essence cured her fear of the dark, which she had suffered ever since she was a child.
